A forever friendship

My friends have heard me say this so many times, but I have to say it again.  I have the best job ever.  The jewellery we make is so often a symbol of deep love and devotion at so many levels.  The story behind this ring is an example of that.

The friendship between two women went back over 30 years.  They shared so many memories and a rich history together.  Over thirty years ago they gifted each other with matching rings.  Years passed and one of the friends lost her ring.  Sadly the other friend passed away and her ring – now somewhat bent and damaged was given to the surviving friend in memory of their friendship.

This is where I was privileged to take part in the story.  We cut the ring in half in order to repair and  preserve the top of the ring.  We  then mounted it on top of a gold family heirloom ring, creating a bond that represented the forever friendship.

The memory of this friendship lasts forever.
